creates original music "from scratch" from within his own imagination. This can be in the form of rough
piano-score "sketch" that can be handed off to an orchestrator (as in
film music), or a lead-sheet that is open to arrangement by anyone
interested in creating their own version of it (such as with jazz and
commercial compositions), or an original piece of music that is also
orchestrated by the composer himself, such as in traditional and
contemporary classical music.
As a composer, my work has been in a wide variety of genres. I've done
full-blown compositions (self-orchestrated) for symphony
orchestra and symphonic wind ensemble, jazz compositions, MIDI
composition for websites, music for video games, car commercials, short
animated films, children's musicals, steelbands, woodwind
quintets, clarinet choirs, chamber jazz ensemble, jazz ensemble and
choir, bell choir, etc.
are MIDI-and-sample mock-ups of original compositions recorded entirely
in-house for promotional purposes. These
same examples can be found on the composition and orchestration page,
and you can check out my jazzier, steel pan-specific
compositions on my CD pages.
